Attention Writers: Read these posts about agents, publishing and contracts!

If you're a writer who's considering hiring an agent or going through a publisher, please read the following two posts.

The first is an article by Kristine Kathyrn Rusch, Advocates, Addendums, and Sneaks, oh my! Rusch has had a lot of experience with publishing contracts. In this article, she talks about the pitfalls and how to avoid them.

A follow up to that article is a post by Passive Guy, a former lawyer, Don't Sign Dumb Contracts. That might seem obvious, but many writers do sign contracts that benefit everyone except the writer. 

In a world hungry for content, writers must protect themselves. Be wise! And cautious!

Hi Suzanne, thanks for helping spread the word. A forewarned writer is a forearmed writer!

Thanks for posting on Kindleboards, Ruth. I've heard some horror stories--from all kinds of writers.
